Laboratory

The practice laboratory allows us to carry out tests on samples and obtain results quickly. We have a biochemistry machine and a haemotology machine which allows us to carry out blood tests and get results within minutes which can be especially important for preoperative samples and those from critically ill patients. We also have a microscope for the examination of blood smears, skin scrapes and other samples. In addition the laboratory is equipped for bacteriological culture of samples.

If more specialist tests are required then samples may need to be sent to an external laboratory. In order to ensure the best possible service for your pets we have a daily courier collection (Monday-Friday) for transport of samples to the laboratory.
